The possibility of a fewer wins in the 2014-15 season for the 76ers has become a harsh reality in the recent weeks. The departure of Thaddeus Young has put this team in a spot where in addition to scoring and defense, reliability and leadership have now been added to list of major concerns for this 2014-15 roster. For most of 2013-14, players such as Young (17.9 PPG), Evan Turner (17.4 PPG) and Spencer Hawes (14.9 PPG) gave the Sixers relatively consistent production.
Making up that offensive production, along with a slew of other meaningful actions on the court, is a challenge that the Sixers simply cannot duplicate in 2014-15. And in the season of the double tank, that may be just the way Sam Hinkie wants it.
After the jump, I’ll look at the various position battles headed into training camp and whether or not any of the candidates can improve on the production the 76ers got at that position in 2013-14.
